Thank you for stopping by today.
I created this card for my dear friend Amy. The school district in which Amy I both lived built a new high school [Carman High School] the year we graduated. Amy and I have been friends for many years. Since our graduation, the name of our high school, including the mascot and school colors changed; today that high school is known as Carman/Ainsworth.
Amy's wonderful husband Jim passed away just before Christmas in 2013. We miss him greatly. He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, son and dear friend of ours.
Amy and Jim opened their home more times then I can count for us to come and fellowship - we had numerous pot lucks together at their home, both inside and outside as weather permitted.
Jim owned Petiprin Tree Farm for over 20 years.He worked for General Motors for over 40 years as a tool/die maker. After retirement, Jim taught welding to high school students. He was a very skilled tool die maker. He made a wonderful green Christmas tree out of horseshoes - it is an amazing piece of art.
A few summers ago, Rick/Dick and I vacationed in the same area with Jim and Amy and enjoyed time on their boat [fun, fellowship,] and a few more pot-lucks.
Today I dedicated this posting to our dear friends, Jim & Amy - We love you Amy and we are here for you.
I leave you with this my dear readers, Life is short - cherish every moment - tell someone you love them today & have a Happy Week! ~ Gail ~
